KINGSPORT, TENN. - Three individuals have been charged with numerous drug offenses after an odor of marijuana was detected coming from their apartment.
A Kingsport courtesy officer was distributing Halloween safety materials to residents at Allandale Falls Apartments.
He noticed a strong odor of marijuana originating from one of the apartments. He talked to the residents and asked them where the marijuana was located. One of the residents, Brett Anderson, voluntarily turned over two bags of marijuana. Also in the apartment at the time of this incident were a co-renter, Zachary Bailey, and a visitor, Isaac Roop.
K.P.D. Vice Detectives located additional unlawful drug paraphernalia inside the apartment including scales, rolling papers, baggies, and baggie ties. More marijuana was found along with Schedule I Narcotics that appeared to be some form of Ecstasy. LSD was also found inside the apartment.
This apartment complex is within 1000 feet of a Kingsport City Elementary School and a privately owned childcare facility.
All three individuals were arrested and transported to the Kingsport City Jail for processing and ultimately to the Hawkins County Jail for confinement.
